Usually Government approves the dearness allowance during the 1st week of September and release the government order in 3rd or 4th week of September, but this year government not yet approved dearness allowance from 1.7.2016. After 7th Pay Commission Implementation the dearness allowance computation formula & the base year must be changed, the computation formula & base year changed in the earlier pay commission also

3rd Pay Commission 1960 =100
4th Pay Commission 1982=100
5th Pay Commission 1982=100
6th Pay Commission 2001=100
7th Pay Commission 2011=100 (expected)
